Which one should I buy: Mercedes GLA or Subaru Outback

Outback is a lot bigger but GLA is more fun. The price is almost the same with Outback leather interior.

    GLA is small, worst gas mileage, no pre collision, and premium gas only. Why on earth would you ever want one

    Oh and then you get gauged with adding options...outback loaded for $30k...always the answer is yes

  • Get outback.

    It’s a much order and proven platform.

    GLA is built on a modded A series which they made into a CLA. Then they elevated the car to charge a premium since Americans love their SUV’s.

    And it’s only a few years old.

    • Also it’s built in America to my knowledge. Front engine, front wheel drive with 4matic sending some torque to the rear wheels.

    I don't own either car and I don't have preference to either company. Here are some facts.

    Subaru recalls

    Mercedes recalls

    All automakers recall because US has the strictest standard in the world. Subaru Outback recalls more than Mercedes GLA. Subaru is the most popular non-European car brand in Europe due to its all-wheel drive system. But, it does have quality issues. It recently did massive recall in Asia for engine related issues.

      Mazda CX-5 if you want cheap and (some) fun with decent interior. Lexus RX 350 for affordable luxury and reliability. Jeep Wrangler for real offroad (and nothing else). But none of these beats the outback in interior space.

    Merc maintenance is what a lot of buyers forget to consider and end up paying a lot more than they planned
